Ben Thanh Market is the largest in the city and you can walk through it just as the locals have done for decades. Visit the War Crime Museum to catch up on exhibits dedicated to victims of both American and Vietnamese war crimes. It also houses an array of military artifacts dating back to the time of the French colonialists. And don’t forget to drop by China Town to visit the Thien Hau Temple.
Despite its recent past, energy and optimism can be felt coming from locals and visitors alike. Many multinational companies have set up shop here, yet HCMC has retained its original Vietnamese dynamics.
Nearby, you’ll find wonderful beaches along the coast and sprawling mountains inland. No matter where you turn in HCMC, you’ll find the hospitality and charm coming from the city’s friendly people.
Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC) is a cosmopolitan city where roughly seven million people mix and mingle every day. Still commonly referred to as “Saigon”, it has remained as the country’s hub for finance and business.
Come and experience a city where history and modernity exist side-by-side, as seen where skyscrapers exist next to faded colonial buildings. Despite the city’s modernization, HCMC’s traditional and cultural aspects are here to be found in a variety of pagodas and historical sites such as Reunification Hall, the Old Post Office and even Notre Dame Cathedral.
